The Magical World of Bureaucratic Forms

Am I the only one that finds this funny?
Some questions on the current SF86 specify a time frame of seven years, which is not consistent with Executive Order 12968. Until a revised form is in place, interim instructions are needed for some of the items on the current SF86 when an SSBI is required. These questions should be answered with a ten (10) year time frame for the case to meet the new standard...
That executive order, by the way, was issued in 1995.

So the form is not legal, and hasn't been for over a decade, but it takes so much work to update it that it is still used, but with instructions to ignore the instructions.
